Scanning Pens sponsors British Dyslexia Association Helpline for a second year

Friday 3 July 2020

We’re pleased to announce that Scanning Pens will be continuing their sponsorship of the British Dyslexia Associations Helpline for a second year. Over the past year their generosity has helped us to support more than 40 people every day.

Our Helpline offers direct support and advice to people with dyslexia and those who support them. Staffed by experts and volunteers, we receive calls and emails from parents, students, adults with dyslexia, teachers and employers.

About Scanning Pens

Founded over 15 years ago, Scanning Pens aims to deliver well designed technology to support individual learning. As a company they’re on a mission to break down barriers for dyslexic people, particularly around access to print based exams. In 2014, the UK exam boards allowed the use of reading pens in exams for everyone and anyone who needs extra help reading exam questions. No access arrangements required. Other exam boards internationally are now allowing the use of pen scanners in exams.
